Beach Body Countdown

How are we doing on our bathing suit body preparation?

I'm only asking because Shabby Apple may or may not be releasing a line of swimwear, oh, perhaps next week. And I am guessing that you and your (hot!) bathing suit body are going to want to be ready. Because the suits might be something adorable like this:

I am going to make you wait until next week for all the juicy details but rest assured, you are going to want to check back here first thing Monday because we will be off on another adventure before you can say, "tan line." Can you guess where we're going?

In the meantime, here are a few more tips for getting into tip-top swimsuit shape. (Thanks again, OK! Weekly. You really never let me down.)

1. Skip the soda.
"Anything with high-fructose corn syrup will increase appetite and make you feel bloated-- this includes soda," according to celebrity nutritionist Oz Garcia. Instead, sip on water of unsweetened iced tea. "If you need sweetener, try honey or stevia."

2. Tone up your bottom half.
"For a hot butt and legs (Editor's Note: Yes, please!), try Stiff Leg Deadlifts," says DavidBartonGym owner David Barton. Lean forward from your hips with a weight in each hand, held in front of your thighs. Keeping your legs straight, rise to a standing position, squeezing your glutes as you come up. Do three sets of 10-12 reps.

3. Beat stress.
Exercise has benefits beyond just looking hot (Editor's Note: Yes, please!). It's a stress reliever, too!

Keep yourself busy through the weekend with that, and we'll set sail again on Monday morning!
